The Magnificent Seven has built itself an interesting cast, but they just lost one valuable member: Jason Momoa has departed Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the classic western, presumably due to his Aquaman commitments. On the flip side, the film may have lost Momoa, but it just added Peter Sarsgaard in the role of the big bad villain.
Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven just got a whole lot more badass. In addition to Fuqua favorite Denzel Washington and everyone-favorite Chris Pratt, the film has just added former Game of Thrones star and future Aquaman Jason Momoa, as well as G.I. Joe: Retaliation star Byung-hun Lee. This film sounds like it’s going to be pretty damn tough.
In 6 days of release, Furious 7 has grossed just under half a billion dollars worldwide. James Wan directed Furious 7. Therefore, a lot of Hollywood producers are going to want James Wan to direct their movie.

There has always been a friendly rivalry between Marvel and DC Comics, and their devoted legions of fans. This has been true for the years and years of comic books and is just as much true now as both look to dominate the superhero movie landscape. But, that friendly rivalry may have gotten a little more heated over the weekend as Aquaman himself threw down his trident to let everyone know how he really feels: “F--- Marvel.”
A few weeks back, Zack Snyder revealed our first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman, who will make his big screen debut in Batman vs. Superman—along with a few other notable DC heroes. With all the casting info and plot details we’ve learned over the last year, that film seems like it should be about three hours long when all is said and done. No stranger to speaking out about his role as Aquaman, Momoa has once again opened up about the upcoming film, revealing just how big his part is, as well as his surprise when Snyder tweeted that photo.

Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder revealed photos of Batman, the Batmobile and Wonder Woman on his Twitter feed, but lately things have been pretty quiet. Many fans were hoping for a first official look at the Batman vs. Superman trailer in theaters with Jupiter Ascending, but that didn't happen. Rumors have it that the trailer itself is ready and just waiting for the right moment to premiere. Could that moment be almost upon us? Snyder returned to Twitter last night, tweeting the first photo of Jason Momoa as Aquaman, along with the new tagline #unitetheseven.
Jason Momoa really is ideal casting for the role of ‘Aquaman’ hero Arthur Curry—he may not be blonde or have short hair or a clean-shaved, typical superhero look, but there’s something about his essence and appeal that makes him the perfect candidate. Momoa just looks like he was born to play some sort of sea God. We weren’t supposed to know about his casting in the film until 2016, but those beans were spilled a bit early, and now Momoa has opened up once again about his casting in the film, whether or not he’ll change his hair for the part (he won’t), and ‘Batman vs. Superman’ director Zack Snyder’s exciting plans for the DC universe.
‘Aquaman’ does’t hit theaters until 2018, but we’ve already begun hearing early reports about the project, which stars Jason Momoa in the role he was basically born to play with that magnificent damn hair. Previously, it was reported that ‘Mud’ director Jeff Nichols was being eyed to helm the aquatic superhero flick, but it looks like WB has added another name to the mix: ‘300: Rise of an Empire’ director Noam Murro. And rumor has it they’ve also got their sights set on ‘Dredd’ star Karl Urban for a supporting role.
